Let’s talk about tooth resorption in dogs - Dr Anthony Caiafa 1 CPD Points


Tooth resorptions in dogs are REAL and occur more often than one would suspect. Often, the resorptions are picked up, as incidental radiographic findings, in middle aged to older dogs, although they can be also seen in younger dogs. With the increasing access to dental radiology available to the veterinary clinician, and the routine radiographic screening of dogs for periodontal disease, tooth resorptions are being diagnosed at an increasing rate. This begs the obvious question, are canine tooth resorptions a relatively new condition, or through this increased diagnostic screening, are we now identifying tooth resorptions, that have been always present in dogs, prior to screening?
